Applying multiple patche deleting shared component
Posted 28 September 2006 - 20:39
From the install logs of patch no. 2, I can see that the file abc.exe is not being cached. It gives the following error:
MSI (s) (84:9C) [13:56:59:255]: Baseline: Existing abc_Hotfix version 4.0.2198.5 does not match any baseline. Will not be cached.
Can someone please tell me whats happening here as I am clueless?

I've seen some similar craziness when testing removable patches. One consistent thing I've found with most of my rushed efforts is that I've not updated the PatchCreation ID. I think the table gets confused and removes all patched files from all removable patches if this value matches.
It's a longshot, but worth comparing the two MSPs in ORCA for this case.

I tried 1 more experiment if it gives hint to someone about the problem:
I modified patch no. 2 in such a way that it does not replace abc.exe if it is already present on the system. But again while uninstalling patch no. 2, it still went ahead and deleted abc.exe.
